Shimadzu GCMS-QP2020

The Shimadzu single quadrupole GCMS-QP2020 gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer offers the highest performance in its class.

The GCMS-QP2020 utilizes patented Advanced Scanning Speed Protocol (ASSP™) technology, allowing high-speed scanning at 20,000 u/second without sensitivity loss or spectral distortion, and is ideally suited for fast-GC/MS and Comprehensive GC/MS (GC x GC/MS). The precision-designed quadrupole mass filter is able to obtain accurate mass assignments across the entire mass range, and is equipped with a pre-filter to reduce the influence of contamination on the main filter.

A Guide to Flash- and Fire Point Measurement

The flash point test can be summarized as a procedure in which a test specimen is introduced into a temperature-controlled test cup and an ignition source is applied to the vapors produced by the test specimen. The aim of the test is to determine whether the vapor/air mixture is flammable or at what temperature the vapor/air mixture is flammable.

Lab Equipment Questions for the Experts

EPPENDORF/Mastercycler - Default Tube Size/Volume
Is there a way to adjust the default setting for all tube sizes and volume? I've found that sometimes I am prompted to enter in the tube/fill. volume after selecting a program (CNTRL/TUBE) and sometimes the program starts running without asking anything. Would I be able to make sure all my programs have this command at the end? Advise this member.

BioTek/Synergy H1 Hybrid - Filters
In the user manual under preventative maintenance it mentions removing the filter block for cleaning and that they are access by opening the hinged front flap, however I can not see a filter block as photographed in the manual could it be that our one does not have this filter block mentioned? Advise this member.

Bio-Rad/TC10 - Focus
My TC10 won't focus and makes a terrible grinding noise when I turn it on. Has anyone had a similar problem? Advise this member.
